Nestled behind black olives, exotic palms & clusia, this extraordinary, updated/remodeled home has a backyard that rivals Fairchild Tropical Botanical Gardens…. with 30+ varieties of rare mature palms…. & 12+ varieties of fruit trees (mango, guava, lychee, citrus, avocado)… along with spectacular outdoor lighting.
An enormous 50 foot pool ( 20′ x 50′ … 10 feet deep … with a diving board) anchors the back yard… with shaded walkways & meandering paths, screened porches/patios, filtered sunlight, and a hot tub.
The current owner added a brand new wing in 2000, artfully & whimsically updating & remodeling the home, installing impact windows & doors. The baths, the master suite & ensuite bath, the family room & the kitchen (the heart of the home!) were all redone in 2011 – 2012, knocking out 3 rooms to create a magazine-quality chef’s kitchen which has been used in the filming of several commercials. Remarkably, this home has been in same family for 53 years. *** To see it is to know why *** All of the rooms are oversized. The Great Room has high-beamed scissor-joist ceilings, oak floors with walnut trim, a working fireplace with a mantle that was purchased in Ireland. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths … 4,676 square feet… And it’s a corner acre lot.
10651 SW 65th Avenue
in Pinecrest was featured on The Villagers 2014 House Tour, “Then & Now”. Located on one of the prettiest streets in Pinecrest … and within the highly desirable Pinecrest Elementary School District… it’s secreted away from the fray. It is unquestionably a one-of-a-kind home … with stunningly bucolic gardens that hint at the romantic & exotic.
10651 SW 65th Avenue is believed to be the oldest post WW II house, & it is 1 of only 2 remaining homes within the Village of Pinecrest made entirely of slump brick.
John Koumjian built the home in 1950 … And the current owners beautifully remodeled it from 2000- 2012.
